The staff, the food, the view! Everything about this venue is amazing. I love working here. They are all beyond helpful and courteous. It is truly a privilege to work here.
The past month I had a wonderful opportunity to film an emotional and intimate, but exceptional wedding at the Rusty Pelican. And I will admit after filming weddings for a while now I thought nothing could surprise me. I was, however, gladly mistaken! Rusty Pelican blew my mind away with breathtaking waterfront views of Miami framed by spectacular floor to ceiling glass windows, modern and chic décor, tufted and elegant furniture, and extravagant chandeliers and light fixtures it was a true fairy tale setting for a lovely couple, who had the best day of their lives! I am extremely happy to add Rusty Pelican to one of my most loved venues as it is a true Florida gem and a must for your perfect day! RIMAS FILMS cannot recommend Rusty Pelican highly enough!
